Pending Jon Jones' signature, Alexander Gustafsson will get his rematch with the light heavyweight champion this summer in Las Vegas.
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has never defended his title in Las Vegas, but it looks like his first one will be made this August.
ESPN's Brett Okamoto reports that Alexander Gustafsson has accepted the UFC's offer to book the rematch with Jones for August 30th, and this fight will be made official once Jones agrees.
UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta told ESPN.com on Saturday the promotion intends to book the 205-pound title bout to a UFC 177 pay-per-view event on Aug. 30 in Las Vegas. The card is expected to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
